Some ComEd customers may have to wait until Saturday to have their power restored after Monday’s severe storms passed through the Chicago area. The utility says about 180-thousand homes and businesses are still in the dark. Electricity is expected to be back on for most customers sometime Friday. At the storms’ peak, 852-thousand customers, mostly residential, lost power. The severe weather created at least one tornado, the first to touch down in the city since 2018.
